Woman arrested in 2020 slaying

- — Julie Zauzmer Weil

More than a year and a half after Bryan William Tate Jr. was found dead in his Southeast D.C. apartment, police arrested and charged his girlfriend in his killing. Tamika Green, 35, was apprehende­d Friday and charged with first-degree murder while armed, D.C. police said Saturday.

Tate was 37 when, according to charging documents, Green told relatives and friends that men had entered the apartment they shared and abruptly shot him. She said she had fled the apartment after the shooting to protect her 3-year-old nephew, who was with her in an adjacent room, court documents said. Tate’s family called police, who entered the home in the 1600 block of 18th Street SE on Feb. 20, 2020, and found him in the living room dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

An attorney listed for Green could not be immediatel­y reached.
